Crossway Community Garden was blessed with an amazing first year!
Thank you to all the incredible volunteers who water, weeded and harvested throughout the season! Our garden produced bushels of peppers, tomatoes, corn, onion, squash, cucumber and watermelon. All which supported Grow Nashua’s three Lil Free Farmstands until the end of September.
Update from Lil Free Farmstand:
Our three locations we were able to serve over 7,700 pounds of fresh produce this season thanks to 150+ different Gardeners that give sharing their harvest! To put that in perspective when you pop into the grocery store and leave with a single plastic veggie bag of fruits and veggies that averages about 7 pounds. So this is over one-thousand of those bags that went home with families this season!
Here is what families have to say:
My kids absolutely love going to the stand, coming home and showing their nonnie the veggies that they received while there! Then they make veggie wraps :)
I love that there are different vegetables sometimes! Also, my son and I enjoy contributing to the Farmstand when we can. Great veggies.
The Farmstand matters for us a lot. It change my life my connection with trash food because I saw the opportunity to have healthy fresh food on table and very amazing and support community there. All this situation with COVID-19 I lost my job and I decided for me and all my little kids I’m not give up ever love you guys!
